Rainbows End Cabernet Sauvignon
Nominated for Platter 5 Stars
Old Mutual Wine Show - Gold
James Suckling - 91 Points
Michael Fridjon selected the wine as his Cabernet Sauvignon for the World six nations competition in Perth. ( will keep you posted here.)
Just received stock of the 2016 which has only just been released so only two gold medals so far and no doubt more to follow.
Rainbows End Cabernet Sauvignon is a fabulous Cabernet. Rainbows End is one of the finest artisan red wine producers in Stellenbosch, and now also makes some very good Chenin Blanc too. Anton Malan's winemaking is exceptional. He puts in a lot of hard work such as handpicking at dawn and manually punching down of the ferment several times a day, which is richly rewarded when you taste his wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon is excellent - powerful and opulent, with weight on the palate balanced by good acidity and a purity that comes from absolute minimal use of additives.
Rainbows End Cabernet Sauvignon - 2016 vintage has just landed, already nominated for Platter 5 Stars yet again and it has already won two gold medals.
Balanced and structured Cab. A mix of New World, ( fruit driven cassis and blackcurrant), as well as Old world style notes with earthy,bramble, meaty and wet soil. Accessible already drinking very well with soft tannins but can also mature for many years.
Came second with 92 points and gold medal at the Trophy Wineshow this year. Also nominated for 5 star John Platter. Was selected by Michael Fridjon to compete for SA at the 6 nations competition in Perth.
